Dear EALgreen Board of Trustees:
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you so much for your support of my education. I just received the wonderful news that I am the recipient of your EALgreen Trustee Cash Gift Scholarship for $1,000. I am both surprised and honored that I was chosen for your award. I am truly grateful for the opportunities your award will provide.
I fell in love with cooking at a young age and have worked in the food service industry since I was 18 years old. After years of living paycheck to paycheck, I decided to enroll myself in the Culinary Arts program offered by Danville Area Community College, and boy am I glad I did! Not only have I met some wonderful instructors (and fellow students) but it reinforced in my mind that cooking is what I was meant to do in life. I was always told as a child, “If you find something you love to do, you will never work a day in your life”. I never knew what that actually meant until I started cooking! I feel my good grades have been attributed to finding something I truly love to do, and that is to cook! I will continue to work diligently to complete my education and to become successful in life!
Once again, I sincerely cannot thank you enough for not only your generosity but for also supporting and believing in myself, as well as, my education! Thank you so very much! You are truly appreciated!
Your generosity and support truly make a difference!!!!
